This chapter is supplemental to and coordinated with the Law, Investigation, and Ethics chapter in the CISSP Prep Guide. The fundamentals of law, investigation, and ethics are covered in Chapter 9 of the CISSP Prep Guide at a level commensurate with that of the CISSP Examination.
This chapter includes advanced material relative to computer law, investigation, and ethics both in the U.S. and internationally. Questions address the recently passed U.S. Patriot Act, international copyright issues, computer forensics, changes in search and seizure laws, Internet monitoring, electronic signatures, and the U.S. Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
It is assumed that the reader has a basic knowledge of the material contained in Chapter 9 and has the CISSP Prep Guide available to provide background information for the advanced questions pertaining to the law, ethics, and information security chapter. These questions and answers build upon the questions and answers covered in Chapter 9 of the Prep Guide.
